insight from christian amanpour. why is he the best man for this move? >> reporter: clearly because of his high profile. it was obviously a high profile visit in order to try to secure the release of these two journalists. many have said that it is unlikely president clinton would have gone and put so much, not just personal prestige but the prestige of the united states and of course the prestige of the presidency on the line if he was not to come out with those two journalists. that's not yet confirmed as to whether he is but many are saying that is unlikely that he would have gone unless he was pretty sure that things would be resolved. the very relevant matter here is that he did meet with the leader of north korea, kim jong-il, who as you know as as we have been reporting, for many months, almost a year, has been reclusive at the very least and in poor health according to many who have better understanding of that situation. it comes at a time when north korea and the united states have very tense relationships, especially north korea with the rest of the world, because of its ramped
